Software Anger Open Thread

Because we haven’t had an O.T. in a while.

Also because I fucking, bloody well HATE Flash!

You see, I made the dumb, dumb, dumb mistake of actually installing the umpteenth update that it alerted me to. And after that, nothing Flash-related would work. Crash, crash, crashedi-crash.

So I look into the issue and find that Adobe, helpfully, on their download page informs that Flash doesn’t support Vista 64bit. Which is OK, except for the fact that the idiotic Flash updater insists on installing the 64bit version anyway because, you know, Windows 7. It does support that in 64bit. But the installer doesn’t helpfully distinguish between OS’s when installing, it just sees “ooo, 64 bit, must be Windows 7!”

Fucking sub-moronic, overpaid, lazy-ass code monkeys.

So I uninstall the bastitch and, hey presto, one restart later, YouTube works again. Of course, in FireFox it insists that it needs the Flash Player still, but it plays the vids just fine. And if you ask it to install the non-missing “missing plug-ins”, it will only offer to install that latest clusterfuck of a system crashing piece of shit version.

Other than that, I just wish they’d jump off a cliff and die.

All of them.

But that’s because I’m in a good mood tonight.

Have at it, Rotts!

Attorney General Holder recently addressed the question of affirmative action, and for how long it would be required. He answered, stunningly, that reverse discrimination has only just begun: “Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices,” Holder said. “The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin[.] … When do people of color truly get… Read more »

Obama Lied, Granny Died The Republican National Committee is hammering President Obama in a new TV ad over what it calls a “broken promise” to bring down health care costs for families. The ad, which can be viewed HERE, airs this week in the pivotal swing states of Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Florida, the RNC said. The… Read more »

When does affirmative action begin? We have a black president and a black AG. Both incompetent as fuck, both elevated to their positions by their race. I’d say affirmative action has well and truly arrived, and we see how well it has worked. Is it November yet?

Six black men assaulted a white man outside a restaurant in Seneca, S.C. on March 17 after insulting him with a racial remark.

The inner hold a prisoner has on his spiritual self relies on having a faith in the future, and that once a prisoner loses that faith, he is doomed.
